Puerto Rico III

El Morro by night...
My first Puerto Rican Cafe con Leche and I'd say it was perfect!

I wore my wedding dress (dyed yellow) to the wedding. 

These are the final pictures of Puerto Rico.  We've been catching up at home -
the adjustment to snow, ice and cold has been crazy to say the least.

Happy New Year!!

El Yunque National Forest (Puerto Rico II)




This was my first visit to a tropical rain forest.
My shoes and legs were covered in mud
after this trek.  El Yunque receives around
200" of rainfall per year and stays at 80
degrees by day and 70 at night.   
I could hear the coqui (frogs) and birds
but did not see them. However, I did spot
the giant snails.
The forest was lush, green and refreshing!

Puerto Rico I


We went to San Juan, Puerto Rico for a family Christmas.
We also shared in a special wedding.

The island is sublime.  The food is amazing.
The people are the friendliest.  It's colorful!
The temperature is a perfect balmy 80 degrees year round.
It rains at night and sometimes during the day.
The beaches are perfect.   
I was totally smitten.
